Which data?

WatchITgrow is an online information platform that enables farmers to monitor their fields and crops quickly, efficiently and precisely. WatchITgrow uses various data sources including satellite images, weather data, soil data, IoT, farm machinery data and user data to generate information on crop growth and health. This information is converted into valuable advice in the form of task maps for variable planting, variable fertilisation, irrigation and haulm destruction.

With this API, VITO makes the fields and task cards created in WatchITgrow available to other applications used by the grower, e.g. farm management packages, which allows for combined grower advice without an administrative burden for the grower. But applications further down the chain are also possible.

This API provides access to the following data:

  • Geometric information of the field
  • Task cards

This data is available per field and per farmer.
